Solving Problems at School

Parents sometimes need to talk to the teacher about concerns they have about their child's education. It could be about their school work, their relationship with other students, or their need for special education support. 

If you have a concern, or if parents at your school need support, People for Education has a Solving Problems at School tip sheet. It's available in 15 languages, and provides tips on talking to your child and school staff and strategies to help you advocate effectively.
